Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce Have Entered Their Low-Key Era

Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce attended an Oscars after-party. Now, there’s no photos of them attending said after-party (a Gucci one, by the way, held at talent manager Guy Oseary’s Los Angeles mansion). But we know they went because an anonymous source tipped off Entertainment Tonight with, well, an incredibly innocuous reveal: “They spent most of the night close together and by each other’s sides and looked happy and in love.”

They didn’t have to go incognito. Although there was a strict no-photos policy at the fête, artist J.R. was on hand to take portraits of everyone from Matthew McConaughey to Selma Hayek. And then there’s the fact that the couple could have party-hopped (and been photographed) elsewhere in town. But they simply chose to stay out of the spotlight—and they succeeded.

Which, for the Swift and Kelce, is no easy feat. From the moment they hard-launched their relationship in September 2023, NFL cameras seemed permanently fixed on Swift in the stands at Kansas City Chiefs Games. Paparazzi trailed them on every date night in New York City. Then there were the TikToks—so many TikToks!—of Kelce attending Swift’s Eras Tour concerts.

(How so many people managed to capture his exact reaction when he heard Swift’s new lyrics to her song “Karma” for the first time (“Karma is a guy on the Chiefs”) was, when you think about it, truly an internet coup. It all culminated at Super Bowl LVIII, where more than 120 million people watched the couple embrace on the field after Kelce and co. took home the Vince Lombardi trophy. It was the most-watched Super Bowl in history.

For the most part, the spotlight was a warm one. Swift is a beloved performer and Kelce a beloved athlete, both with mega-passionate fanbases. It felt like two of America’s favorite people had joined forces—and there were statistics to prove it:

“Lots of Americans like both Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce—and their new relationship,” read a YouGov poll from October 2023. When respondents were asked which of Swift’s romantic relationships was the “best match” for her, an overwhelming majority chose Kelce. (He came in first, at 22%, while Harry Styles was a distant second, at 8%, and Joe Alwyn floundered at 1%.)

However, that level of mega-fame always comes with a dark side. There was the snarky commentary: “The big difference between the Golden Globes and the NFL? At the Golden Globes, we have fewer camera shots of Taylor Swift,” Golden Globes host Jo Koy told an unamused crowd. Then, there were the wild conspiracy theories that swirled around the couple. The most persistent? That their relationship was orchestrated by the government as part of a psychological plot to influence Americans to vote for Joe Biden. They’d endorse him together at the Super Bowl. (No such thing happened.)

 

Perhaps that’s why, for fans of the couple, their recent absence from the headlines feels so welcome. Kelce himself spoke of his deep admiration for the way his girlfriend handles her almost-unfathomable level of fame:

“The scrutiny she gets, how much she has a magnifying glass on her, every single day, paparazzi outside her house, outside every restaurant she goes to, after every flight she gets off, and she’s just living, enjoying life. When she acts like that I better not be the one acting all strange,” he told The Wall Street Journal. If only for a moment, during the post-football season lull, she’s out from underneath the magnifying glass

Travis Kelce reveals what he really thinks about Sydney after his two-day trip Down Under with his girlfriend Taylor Swift for her Eras tour

Travis Kelce has revealed what he really thinks of Sydney after his whirlwind two-day trip Down Under with his girlfriend Taylor Swift.

The NFL tight-end, 34, jetted to Australia last month for a very brief 48-hour getaway to watch pop star Taylor perform at Sydney’s Accor Stadium amid her Eras tour.

He proved himself to be every inch the doting boyfriend as they went on a date to Sydney Zoo and were seen strolling hand-in-hand as they made the most of the trip.

And Travis has now revealed exactly what he thought of Sydney as he reviewed the city while speaking to his brother Jason on their New Heights podcast.

He compared his trip to his recent visit to Singapore, where he watched another of Taylor’s Eras tour shows, and admitted he wants to go back to Australia to see more of the country.

When asked by Jason, 36, whether he preferred Singapore or Australia, he replied: ‘Man that’s a tough sell, I loved them both.

‘I want to see more of Australia, I feel like I got to see a little bit more of Singapore. So I’m going to say Singapore was a little bit more interesting for sure.’

He went on to reveal that he had a ‘unique’ and ‘cooler’ experience in Singapore, but was quick to add: ‘But I was only in Australia for a couple of hours.’

His brother Jason then compared Sydney to Florida’s Gulf Coast city Tampa, which is known for its beaches and Riverwalk.

Tampa has a population of almost 400,000, compared to Sydney which boasts more than five million residents, while it is known for its lively arts scene and waterfront activities.

Comparing Sydney to the American city, Jason said: ‘I feel like Sydney is just like Tampa, I don’t think it’s that much different.’

To which Travis replied: ‘Which is probably why I want to see more of it, I’m intrigued, I’m there. The Aussies know how to have a good time man.’

Travis also made a rare comment about his girlfriend Taylor, 34, as he gushed about watching her Eras tour shows in Sydney and Singapore.

He said: ‘I got to see two amazing shows of the Eras tour, the last leg that Taylor has until she’s back at it in a couple of months.’

Taylor will have a much-needed break from touring until May and it was recently revealed how she and Travis are planning to make the most of the free time together.

The smitten couple will finally get the chance to ‘play house’ and experience being a ‘normal couple’ after a hectic few months due to Travis’ NFL season and Super Bowl victory and Taylor’s Eras tour.

‘This is the first time the two of them have had no commitments and they are both really looking forward to being a normal couple and playing house,’ a source exclusively revealed to DailyMail.com.

Taylor is known for spending her downtime baking and hosting her friends – and the singer is said to be looking forward to doing the same with her partner.

‘She is looking forward to sleeping in and cooking dinners at home,’ the source continued.

‘They both want their relationship to be as normal as possible and it works because they are both very aware of their fame but neither let it go to their heads.’

The duo will still have to travel back and forth between their home bases in Kansas City, Missouri and New York City as Taylor prepares for the release of her next studio album, The Tortured Poets Department, on April 19.
